A conversation on wellbeing.

With the sun shining longer, we can enjoy the outdoors without worrying about harming our skin.

Everyone knows that sunscreen is a crucial part of a comprehensive sun protection strategy to safeguard your skin against sun damage and skin cancer. However, choosing the best SPF can be challenging.

For example, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends SPF 30 for everyday outdoor activities. Yet, the texture and chemical composition of sunscreen, especially if used under makeup and in the city rather than at the beach, can vary significantly. Additionally, the sun’s rays are stronger at higher elevations. So, if you're skiing, hiking, or walking in the mountains, consider using SPF 50 or higher.

City-Smart Sun Protection.

However, if you're in the city and love walking in the sunshine or sitting outside to enjoy your cool drinks, here's my message to you.

Personally, I find that using a strong sunscreen like SPF 50+ in the city, particularly mineral sunscreens with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, clogs my pores and doesn’t fully protect my skin. Believe it or not, every time I've tried, I ended up getting sunburned!

Ultimately, finding the right sunscreen is a personal choice. However, I would like to recommend you the amazing Omnis Repair and Protect SPF 30. It doesn’t leave a white cast, works perfectly under makeup, and is highly antioxidant. Additionally, it is water-based, easily absorbed, and provides instant hydration. It supports your skin with hyaluronic acid and micronized titanium, which not only nourish but also protect against harmful UV rays and other environmental factors.

Sunscreen for Urban Living.

A water-based sunscreen like Omnis is perfect for city use because it allows you to wear makeup without feeling sticky, especially during summer days. Its lightweight, non-greasy formula ensures that the skin stays hydrated, comfortable, and protected from the sun, and this is exactly what I look for in a perfect city sunscreen.

We should always  wear sunscreen on our  face and under makeup especially during the hot sunny summer days, to protect our skin from harmful UV rays, which can cause sunburn, premature ageing, and increase the risk of skin cancer. Sunscreen provides a crucial barrier against sun damage, helping to maintain skin health and appearance. Additionally, using sunscreen under makeup ensures consistent protection throughout the day, even when cosmetics are applied.

A Conversation on Health.

Makeup can provide some level of sun protection, but it is usually not enough on its own. Many foundations and powders contain SPF, but they often lack the broad-spectrum coverage and sufficient SPF levels needed for effective sun protection. Therefore, it's important to use a dedicated sunscreen underneath makeup to ensure comprehensive protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Omnis sunscreen offers exceptional protection with its lightweight, non-greasy, and water-based formula, making it perfect for daily use in the city. It deeply hydrates the skin, sits comfortably under makeup, and provides robust protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Everyone should have Omnis sunscreen this summer to ensure their skin stays healthy, radiant, and well-protected. Check all the ingredients on our website!
